Kroger, North Main Street, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday to celebrate recent renovations.
Store manager Buck Hodgson held the ceremonial scissors. The remodeling includes features such as a sushi bar and a Boar’s Head sandwich station, and ClickList grocery ordering which will kick off next week.
Kroger’s Community Rewards program allows users of the store’s “Kroger Plus” discount card to designate a preferred charity, such as a school, which receives a small donation every time the card is used. One of the most active local charities in the program is Thomas Magnet School, which has earned $3,700 through the program. To celebrate its grand opening, Kroger added a $500 gift card on top of that amount.

As part of the supermarket chain’s “Zero Hunger, Zero Waste” campaign, Kroger contributed $1,500 to the Community Outreach Partnership Food Bank during Tuesday’s ceremonies.
